King Cove Dancers

King Cove Dancers

From one of the five last remaining Eastern Aleut villages still in existence today, the King Cove dancers embody the spirit and heritage of a people. The group was founded in 1994 to help share the Eastern Aleut culture around the world. With rhythmic drums and traditional dress, this young group takes audiences on a wild, exotic trip to one of the most remote, untouched regions on earth. Among their most popular dances, the salmon dance, is an homage to Aleutia—the sockeye salmon Aleut families have centered their lives around since the Second Ice Age.
